The Asus Zenfone 8 Flip is one of the few flagships without holes or other interruptions in the display (thanks to its flip-up camera). That makes it definitely interesting in terms of design. But I love the Xiaomi Mi 11 too much because of its curved screen, high screen-to-body ratio, and original rear cover, so my choice would still be the Xiaomi Mi 11. Further, the Xiaomi Mi 11 is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus, so it should be sturdier.
If you need the best display, you should go for the Xiaomi Mi 11 without thinking twice. Its Quad HD+ resolution provides a higher level of detail and its 120 Hz refresh rate provides a smoother viewing experience. Further, it shows up to one billion colors and it even comes with a wider diagonal for the display (6.81 inches vs 6.67 inches). Last but not least, it has a higher brightness which guarantees higher visibility under sunlight. The Zenfone 8 Flip still comes with a great display including the AMOLED technology, the HDR10+ certification, and a 90 Hz refresh rate, but it can not compete with the Xiaomi Mi 11.
SPECS & SOFTWARE
Xiaomi Mi 11 and Asus Zenfone 8 Flip are both flagships fueled by the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform by Qualcomm, but the Mi 11 comes in a configuration with 12 GB of RAM, while Asus Zenfone 8 Flip stops at 8 GB. Further, the MIUI software found on the Xiaomi Mi 11 is richer in features than the Zen UI. On the other hand, Zenfone 8 Flip is one of the few flagships which still retain the micro SD slot to expand the internal storage.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 has a better main camera: a 108 MP main sensor with OIS and 8K video recording support. The Asus Zenfone 8 Flip has an inferior 64 MP main sensor but superior secondary sensors, including an 8 MP telephoto sensor with 3x optical zoom (the Mi 11 lacks a telephoto sensor) and a 12 MP ultrawide camera. Further, the rear camera module of the Zenfone 8 Flip can be used as a front camera because it is a flip-up camera module.
The Asus Zenfone 8 Flip has a bigger battery than Xiaomi Mi 11: while the former has a big 5000 mAh unit, the Mi 11 comes with just 4600 mAh. It is also a more efficient phone because its display is smaller and it comes with a lower resolution, so it will most likely last more on a single charge. But the Xiaomi Mi 11 wins the charging comparison: it supports fast wireless charging (which is not present on the Zenfone 8 Flip) with a power of 50W and even faster wired charging (55W vs 30W).
The Xiaomi Mi 11 and the Asus Zenfone 8 Flip are priced at €800/$975 in the global market (Europe). The same price for two very different phones and there is not a clear winner, despite I would definitely choose the Xiaomi Mi 11 unless the Asus Zenfone 8 Flip goes more affordable. The Xiaomi Mi 11 offers a better display, wireless charging, and faster charging speeds. With the Asus Zenfone 8 Flip, you get a more interesting camera setup and a bigger battery.
